Paintings by Kenya's renown artist

Bulinya Martins

Afroexpressionist Artist makes a departure

From treatment, technique and painterliness, relive the prehistoric art of caveman futurized in Bulinya's object art work. His workmanship and the sensitivity reminiscences the performative experience of the ancient Egyptian hieroglyphics art, the fineness terracotta of Ife combined with and integrated then mixed and "shaken" thoroughly to produce African expressionism. In other pieces the style still display some semblances with the Makonde, Bakuba and Bamenge Akamba and Kisii artifacts.

Bulinya's finesse lies in his subtle yet prolifically meaningful and appealing usage of acrylic and gold or silver lines in composing, arranging of artistic elements into sublime tastefulness.

Brilliant reds oranges yellows highlighted, bright hues and skirted with tints revealing his core essence as an artist. His artiness and temperament come out and we realize he is an ardent symbolist yet humbly simple with intricacy and witty embellishment woven in the logographic ease and artistic essence. In it, is embedded wisdom of the ancients and prehistoric, preliterate traditional Africa.

Artistic wise sayings

He who has people has more than riches can buy- Chinua Achebe

Every artist dips his brush in his own soul, and paints his own nature into his pictures. ~Henry Ward Beecher

Painting is just another way of keeping a diary. ~Pablo Picasso

The aim of every artist is to arrest motion, which is life, by artificial means and hold it fixed so that a hundred years later, when a stranger looks at it, it moves again since it is life. ~William Faulkner

Every child is an artist. The problem is how to remain an artist once we grow up. ~Pablo Picasso

Painting is silent poetry but it speaks when you watch it keenly. - Bulinya Martins
